Course sub-headings

Course overview

The Master of Education is offered to professional educators. Students can choose to do coursework only, or combine coursework with a research paper.

The Master of Education builds upon the Graduate Certificate offered within the Faculty and, if undertaken with a research paper, may articulate to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

As a graduate of this course students will possess an understanding of contemporary education issues and discourses; have high-level critical and evaluative skills; translate into practice your experiences and understandings of the program; and have demonstrated their ability to undertake educational research projects.

Students will be expected to have computer and internet access.

Articulation

Master of Education students who successfully complete two credits of research method studies and a two credit point research paper, at an appropriate standard, may apply for entry into PhD studies.

Those who complete a Master of Education by coursework alone, will be required to complete some level of research training at an appropriate standard before being accepted for doctoral studies.
